Relationships With Other CharactersEdit

Takashi ToshiroEdit

Takashi and Booger are the closest in the first film. Booger and Takashi play cards together, with Booger constantly swindiling Takashi out of winning.

The Omega-Mu'sEdit

At first Booger believes the Mu's to be "a bunch of pigs" but almost as soon as they arrive, his opinion completely turns around, partially due to how fun they are and partially due to Booger not being particularly attracted to conventionally good looking women. In the third film, part of his reasoning for coming back to Adams is that the Mu's are still on campus. In the fourth movie Booger reveiles that he spent alot of his college time partying with the Mu's, and has had sex with nearly all of them.

Jeannie HumphreyEdit

Booger meets Jeannie at an Omega-Mu fundraiser. They fall in love after realizing they have alot of common interests and end up getting married, despite several attempts by the bride's family to have the wedding cancelled.

Heidi DawsonEdit

Heidi is an orphan that Jeannie's brother in-law has pretend to be Booger's love child in Nerds in Love. Booger tries to be a good father to her, and even contemplates marrying the woman he believes to be her mother, instead of his fiance. When she reveals who she really is, Booger and Jeannie decide to adopt her.

Hobbies and TalentsEdit

Booger is a talented guitar player and in the third movie he becomes an attorney.

  • Booger appeared in an episode of "Robot Chicken" called "Boo Cocky", in a sketch called "Revenge on the Revenge of the Nerds". He has no lines.
  • The "American Dad" character Snot Lonstein (also played by Curtis Armstrong) is named after and designed after Booger, though his actual character bares little similarities.
  • Another nerdy character played by Curtis Armstrong was in Akeelah & the Bee. In this one he plays the headmaster of an inner-city elementary school who recognizes the protagonist's spelling abilities and sponsors her in a series of spelling bees. Although nerdy, he is different from Booger in that he interacts with other people and keeps filthy habits to himself.
